The Norton History of Modern Europe by. I read this book years ago and have now reread the first part, the one related to WW1. The Present alluded to in the title is the 1970s. Felix Gilbert (1905-1991) was a half German half British historian who became American in the 1930s. His mother was the granddaughter of the musician Felix Mendelssohn (so we should not be surprised at Gilbert's given name).

We used this for European History and it wasnt very good, our teacher disliked this book but its more fitting to our teaching classes.

Felix Gilbert, late of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, was the first recipient of the American Historical Association's Award for Scholarly Distinction in 1985. David Clay Large is professor of history at Montana State University and the author of Berlin (2000) and Where Ghosts Walked: Munich's Road to the Third Reich (1997). We used this for European History and it wasnt very good, our teacher disliked this book but its more fitting to our teaching classes. However: - Gilbert gets too personal in his writing, the chapter on Hitler and Nazi Germany is not at all professional, its full of insults and attacks on Hitler.

The Internet Archive is a bargain, but we need your help.

Felix Gilbert (May 21, 1905 – February 14, 1991) was a German-born American historian of early modern and modern Europe. Gilbert was born in Baden-Baden, Germany to a middle-class Jewish family, and part of the Mendelssohn Bartholdy clan. In the latter half of the 1920s, Gilbert studied under Friedrich Meinecke at the University of Berlin. Gilbert's area of expertise was the Renaissance, especially the diplomatic history of the period.

This third edition brings fully up to date the leading text in twentieth-century European history. The last three chapters of this new edition focus much more closely on the years of abundance in Western Europe and de-Stalinization in Eastern Europe (the mid-1950's through the mid 1960's), the student revolts of the late 1960's, the crisis in Czechozlovakia, the spread of terrorism and the emergence of Eurocommunism, the impact of the oil crisis int the early 1970's, the rise and fall of detente, the crisis in Poland, and the current controversy over arms control and the installation of nuclear weapons in Europe. In a thoughtful Epilogue Professor Gilbert assesses the reduced but still crucial position Europe has come to occupy in the world. (from the back cover) The front cover has 1 crease, and some of the first pages show also. No marks in text and normal aging otherwise.

  • Felix Gilbert gives, I believe, an excellent account of the major historical events that affected Europe from toward the end of the 19th century to the present (which at the time of writing was the 1970s).

    What was very helpful was the sensible groupings of chapters which gives at a quick glance the major content of the book (sure this is not novel but unfortunately some history books are not as clear in their presentation) and the fact that events were traced within the major European powers (Great Britain, France, Russia, Germany and the Austro-Hungarian empire). This to and fro between the events in the major powers and the general European situation helps the reader see the big picture but then gives sufficient detail at the national level to see what the situation in the respective countries was.

    All history will undoubtedly have some elements of bias but in this work Gilbert manages to give a fair presentation of the facts. I am not a historian so I cannot attest to this, but he seems to make some very commonsensical claims.

    Something else which I appreciated about this book was the author's reference to major works of fiction that were based on the period in question. The only unfortunate thing about this is that these references are made in-text and not included in the suggestions for further reading. The bibliography is also very helpful.

    Finally, I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to gain an understanding of the period from 1890 to the 1970s. The work is highly accessible but not `simplified' for general consumption as many other books are.

  • It's a lot of reading because there is so much info. At least every other sentence is worth noting.
